Bowsprit

The bowsprit allows to advance the sailing surface. Depending on your capacities there is a retractable version which is more or less simple to install.

We have chosen bowsprits produced by the brand VMG due to their attractive price and a fairly simple mounting.

The bowsprit in aluminum is sufficiently solid to carry an asymmetric spinnaker or the Furling S. Would you like to use a Code 0 or a gennaker with higher load on the cable it would be strongly recommended to add a bobstay.
